Experiences with the program
All B.A.S.E.® groups have reported very similar findings: The children are less aggressive, ask questions when they don’t understand something, and are more capable to empathise with other children.
- Intensive engagement with the baby noticeably strengthens the children’s socialization.
- As a result, this program may effectively counter and even prevent undesirable aggressiveness and fear in children.
B.A.S.E.® has also established itself internationally. You will find articles about our international presence under News.
B.A.S.E.® began in Gilchingen, near Munich, in 2004 at the initiative of Dr. med. Karl Heinz Brisch. Since then, B.A.S.E.® programs have been conducted throughout Germany.
In 2005, we began a pilot project at a private preschool in the town of Wörgl, in Tyrol, Austria. Shortly thereafter, we started the first full-year programs in Innsbruck and Kufstein. Since then, B.A.S.E.® Babywatching has become an integral and respected program in nursery schools throughout Tyrol and Germany.
The B.A.S.E.® Babywatching project was conducted for the first time in an elementary school class at a school in Kufstein-Zell during the summer semester of 2007. Since then, numerous school projects have been initiated in Tyrol and Germany.
In 2008 we began a nursery school project and numerous other school projects in New Zealand.
In 2012, we started the first B.A.S.E.® Babywatching project in a school in London, and the first nursery school project in the Netherlands.
A big pilot project started in September 2012. The city of Frankfurt (Germany) financially provides the installation of 40 B.A.S.E.® institutions around Frankfurt on the Main .
Further projects are currently in the planning stage.
